12-year-old Caleb Anderson is already on track to graduate with his bachelor’s degree in aerospace engineering. The science prodigy is set to transfer from Chattahoochee Technical College to his dream school, the Georgia Institute of Technology in the fall.
“Caleb Anderson was just 3 when became the youngest Black American male to qualify for MENSA,” the Georgia Institute of Technology wrote to People. “Now 12, Caleb has been officially accepted to Georgia Tech and will join us on campus this fall to earn a degree in aerospace engineering.”
MENSA is a non-profit organization for people who score in the 98th percentile or higher in a standardized intelligence test.
Before college, Caleb’s greatness was showed through his ability to learn sign language at 9 months old, and solve math problems before he turned 2.
His parents were asked during an interview with CBS News could pledge a fraternity where Claire and Kobi Anderson made their expectations for his college experience clear.
“No! We’re definitely protecting him,” Kobi said. However, Caleb’s mother, Clairer wants, “to make sure that when he is an adult, he’ll make a great husband, a great father, a great friend one day.”
